Camping

I have just returned from my first ever camping trip, it was rather last minute but since I had a 4 day weekend and no other plans, off I went. Recently, I was raiding through a box of old things and I found a brand new backpack which was the perfect size for me, along with a sleeping bag and other useful items.  What better time to try them out than a sunny April weekend!

Venturing into the woods, I hadn’t planned a specific route I decided to go with the flow.

Checking the map to see where I should go next.

Taking a closer look at something interesting on the horizon, binoculars were one of the useful things I found in my backpack.

Found a peak to climb so I could view the area I had hiked through, so beautiful and green.

It’s hard work rolling out a sleeping bag when you have short arms!  I was very tired after a long day of hiking through the countryside.

And that was my first ever camping trip. I really enjoyed my night sleeping under the stars.  It really helped me to fully relax and ground myself after a stressful week which left me feeling quite anxious. Switching off all of my electronics let me fully recharge and return feeling rested.  I wasn’t a fan of sleeping on the floor, maybe next time I’ll try glamping (or find a B&B).  I definitely enjoyed my trip to the countryside and I am looking forward to visiting again sometime soon.  I’d definitely recommend a weekend in the countryside camping to everyone, especially those prone to stress or mental health issues because the slower pace helps restore and balance positive emotions.
